Amazon's new 10" 1080p Fire HD tablet

Amazon's Fire tablets have replaced Apple iPads around our house. This new 10" tablet will be mine.

My daughter has broken many very expensive Apple tablets. I switched her over to an Amazon Fire that only cost $50 and she loved it. I tried one and never looked back.

Due to my heavy use of Apple OS X for a lot of my day-to-day work, Android doesn't integrate quite as well as I'd like — but for entertainment, which is mostly what I look to a tablet for, these Amazon devices are perfect. I have all the toys I want, and almost none of the distractions that'd take me away from watching, reading or playing.

I am sure if I put the effort in to making Android work well with my interconnected OSX tools all would be well, but I don't want it. I find the screens Amazon chooses to be beautiful, and Amazon Prime video is incredibly easy to access. Netflix and Hulu are also right there for me, when I want them.

This new unit sports a 1.8/1.4 GHZ quad-core processor and 2 GB RAM. It'll be interesting to see how it benchmarks against the Apple iPad Pro, for far, far less money.

I await eagerly. I ordered red.
